Interested in learning more about the parks? Ranger-led programs give you the opportunity to explore in-depth and ask questions. Programs are presented by both national park rangers and naturalists with the Sequoia Parks Conservancy.

Schedules vary depending on the season and the park area. We offer the widest variety and number of ranger-led programs from late June through August. When you arrive, check visitor centers and bulletin boards in each area for program details or schedule changes.

Check our park map for locations. There is about a one-hour drive between each of the following areas: the Foothills, Giant Forest/Lodgepole, Grant Grove, and Cedar Grove. Mineral King is about a 1-1/2 hour drive from the turnoff at Hwy 198.
